Goofs

Doctor Strange leaves NY City across the George Washington Bridge going westbound towards New Jersey and is then seen driving a winding road along a cliff that ascends to his right and descends to his left. When the car spins out of control and leaves the road on the left side going down the cliff, the vehicle is shown at rest in the Hudson River north of the George Washington Bridge. If he went off the road to his left and into the Hudson River, the vehicle should have been shown south of the George Washington Bridge. See more »

A fantastic, excellent and glamorous movie with everything. A class act
20 October 2016 | by (Blackburn, Lancashire, England) – See all my reviews

Without giving away too much, Benedict Cumberbatch just kills it. He is one class actor. Cumberbatch rocks as Strange and pulls it off with ease. The impressions his portrayal gives us is that he was born to play the role of the ex-neurosurgeon turned Sorcerer Supreme. Such is the talent of the lead cast, that it represents just how good the movie was overall. Every normal movie watcher will love the action, humour, adventure and fantasy throughout the film.

A solid new character introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with loads of potential. Cumberbatch solidifies and anchors his role in the MCU as Stephen Strange in a similar fashion to RDJ doing so with Tony Stark.

A must watch! Enjoy!
